on your seat belts. let's take a look at how this story is unfolding as i speak. several months ago fbi agents started investigating harassment allegations against paula broad broadwell, general petraeus' biography and as it turns out, his mistress. they sent messages to this woman, jill kelly who worked as a social liaison at an air force base, and she also knows petraeus. the messages were not threatening but full of cat fight stuff like you parade around the base. you need to take it down a notch. those were the e-mail messages sent from paula broadwell to jill kelly. and jill kelly took those e-mails to the fbi and said i don't know who this person is and i don't want to keep getting them. the fbi learned that the e-mails were coming from broadwell, and they interviewed paula broadwell and general petraeus, and they admitted that they were having an affair with each other. they said that the affair went on after he left the military. if it went on during military duty he could be prosecuted in military courts. they also looked at whether broadwell leaked confidential information. sh

of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mail correspondent spns with kelley who in may started receiving a series of what she considered to be harassing e-mails from petraeus biographer and fellow west point grad paula broadwell. the ensuing invest
